> The head of the council turns to Oz. "You are a knight of New Camelot. We

> timely aid they sent. You may use our radio equipment."
The German knight nodded. "I will."
> "That leaves a remaining matter." the head of the council says. "That is
> your two prisoners. The one, the Altara Blind Warrior Woman, I leave in your
> care Sir Osmar. You may take her, if you will, or she may remain here."
"Perhaps I'm growing complacent in my old age, but I believe the woman
when she says she would fight the Splugorth. If she cares to travel
with us, I will take her in my company."

Oz shakes his head. "If we can't kill it we must imprison it. It's
killed dozens, if not hundreds of people. We can't let it roam around
loose. That's the closest thing to justice Jacek's people are likely
to see. We owe them the thing's incarceration, at the very least."
